Kylie Scott has a knack for mixing the perfect amounts of angst and humor in her books. Adele and Peter started out as friends when she was a teenager and he was working for her father. At 18 she professed her love and was humiliated. Now at 25 she's home and the sexual tension is palpable. I love Adele! She's unapologetic and brash, while still sweet and vulnerable. Peter is intense and grumpy and has no idea what to do with Adele (cue the angst). This is a cute and romantic story that features all of the good tropes...Older man, forbidden love, second-chance, and a little enemies-to-lovers. You'll be laughing and swooning for days!

He reached out, taking hold of my hand. Our fingers curled around each other out of pure instinct. It was like drawing lines in the sand by the shoreline; waves just kept washing them away. Only my messy heart couldn’t take any more hits.

"Jesus, Adele. You turn back up here with your wise-ass mouth, getting in my face like I always did, all grown up and looking hot-as-fuck. What was I supposed to do?"


Publisher's Synopsis

Returning home for her father’s wedding was never going to be easy for Adele. If being sent away at eighteen hadn’t been bad enough, the mess she left behind when she made a pass at her dad’s business partner sure was.

Fifteen years older than her, Pete had been her crush for as long as she could remember. But she’d misread the situation—confusing friendliness for undying love. Awkward. Add her father to the misunderstanding, and Pete was left with a broken nose and a business on the edge of ruin. The man had to be just as glad as everyone else when she left town.

Seven years later, things are different. Adele is no longer a kid, but a fully grown adult more than capable of getting through the wedding and being polite. But all it takes is seeing him again to bring back those old feelings.

Sometimes first loves are the truest.

My romance novel obsession started when I was a kid reading my Mom's Jackie Collins novels. I’m a romance junkie and I like my men to be alpha males and my ladies to be quirky and strong. I need the HEA but it’s OK if it takes 2 or 3 or 10 books to get there. Lee Nightingale is my forever BBF.

I’m a full-time Realtor and fuller-time Mommy with a husband, 2 kids and 4 cats. I love to travel almost as much as I love to read.
